Easy microwave green onion jasmine rice

Love the jasmine rice but want to take it to another level. Try green onion rice.  Here’s a super easy rice recipe which is all done in the microwave.   This green onion jasmine rice is a great accompaniment to anything Asian, such as seen in my previous post, Asian beef short ribs.

I’m not one to use the microwave for much, except for melting butter, however I do like this recipe because it’s so simple and it goes a little further than just plain white rice.  In this one you just need a bowl, a microwave and plastic wrap!

Serves 4

  • 1/2 cup green onions, thinly sliced white and light green portions
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Finely chop the green onions and mix them in a large microwavable bowl with the oil to form a paste.  Add the rice to the boil with the water and salt.  Cover the bowl tightly with microwave plastic wrap.
  2. Microwave at 100% power for 5 minutes.  Then microwave at 50% power for another 5 minutes.
  3. Carefully remove bowl from microwave and let rice rest covered for 5 additional minutes.
  4. When ready remove plastic wrap and serve!

That’s it!  I knew there was a reason to keep the microwave!
